Access Requirements

Building and Laboratory Access Requirements for the School of Chemistry

 

GENERAL BUILDING and OFFICE ACCESS

Access to the buildings (after hours) and offices (all hours) requires the following:

  1. Completion of the necessary Compulsory 1 online induction modules which cover most requirements of the HS006 General Induction Form.
  2. A face-to-face induction for your primary work building and a completed HS006 General Induction Form.

The required online modules include:

Introduction module (required for all users)

Building-specific sub-modules (required for access to the specified buildings)

The face-to-face induction for your primary work building and completed HS006 General Induction Form should cover:

  • Face-to-face introduction to area First Aid Officer(s)
  • Face-to-face introduction to area Fire/Floor Warden(s)
  • Specific locations of first aid kits
  • Any other aspects of the HS006 that you are unsure of

NOTE: The online modules DO NOT cover the HS006 requirements noted above (which is why a face-to-face induction and HS006 form is required).

NOTE: You do not need to complete an HS006 for access to subsequent buildings, but you should familiarise yourself with the locations of First Aid Officer(s), Fire/Floor Wardens(s) and first aid kits before commencing work in the subsequent buildings.  For example, if you have completed the requirements for access to the F10/F12 buildings and need access to the SEB building and/or office, you only need to complete Compulsory 1.1.3 and submit an access request form.

 

Access requests for GENERAL Building and Office areas should be submitted using the GENERAL Access Request Form which can be found on the Chem Local website.

 

GENERAL LABORATORY ACCESS

Access to MOST laboratories requires the following:

  1. Completion of the necessary Compulsory 2 online induction modules which cover most requirements of the HS049 Laboratory Induction Form.
  2. A face-to-face induction for your primary work building and a completed HS049 General Induction Form.

The required online modules include:

Introduction module (required for all users):

Complete any relevant building-specific sub-modules (required to access labs in the specified buildings):

Complete the remaining Compulsory 2 modules (required for all users):

The face-to-face induction for your primary work building and a completed HS049 General Induction Form should cover:

  • Face-to-face introduction to area First Aid Officer(s)
  • Face-to-face introduction to area Fire/Floor Warden(s)
  • Specific locations of safety and emergency equipment (spill kits, first aid kits, fire extinguishers, safety showers, eyewash stations, emergency stop buttons, etc.)
  • Any special laboratory requirements (e.g. laser lab training, PC2 requirements, etc.)

NOTE: The online modules DO NOT cover the HS049 requirements noted above in point 2 (which is why a face-to-face induction and HS049 form is required).

NOTE: You generally must complete an HS049 induction form for each new lab space you will be working in (to cover the items in point 2 above) with few exceptions (some labs that fall on the RESTRICTED list do not require HS049s).

NOTE: If you have completed the requirements for access to labs in one building, you need to complete the building-specific sub-module and get an induction and completed HS049 form to access labs in another building.

 

Access requests for GENERAL laboratory areas should be submitted using the GENERAL Access Request Form which can be found on the Chem Local website.
